Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y In 2006, Microsoft released Windows Powershell, a new command line shell that, via cmdlets, scripts, and executables, allow core system administration tasks to be scripted. While this functionality has been available on Unix-type systems for decades, Microsoft's version will almost certainly, within a few years, be available on several hundred million PCs. So how does the Powershell stack up against Linux favorite bash? MSDN links to this Bash vs Powershell article.

Member since:

if your a good windows admin, then your used to scripting things. Perl has navtive windows support. you can also use vbscript. hell even python,

the main point being, just becuase your in a windows shop does not mean your brian dead and dont script anything. the only way to effectively maintain a large number of workstations and servers is *with* scripting. i have so many scripts in a few different langages, its not even funny.

and, the other admins, and IT guys i know that work in like enviroments are like wise scriptors. tho to be fair, most of us maintian or have maintianed *nix, so we carry over practices we have learned.
